    Great White Off VA Bch?

    After checking the morning surf reports/forecasts and bemoaning the continued flat conditions, I found this article in today's VA Pilot:

    Yeah there are 3 off of SC right now. Think they got the facts wrong in that article. Mary Lee 16ft and over 3200 lbs yet they claim this 15 ft shark was upwards of 700-800 lbs? Must have meant upwards of 1700-1800 lbs.

    Some idiot commented that there needs to be a shark warning. There is always sharks in the water. Touristas!

    My cousin just showed me a pic his buddy got at the OCMD inlet a couple weeks ago. His go-pro fell off and was dangling in the water, when he ant home he watched it and there was a 12' great white right there under him. Was blown away by the pic, got to try to get it so I can post it on here...just proves one thing, if they were there to eat people there'd be mass carnage on our shorelines.

    Nothing unusual there. The lineups would probably really thin out if we knew just how many sharks are in close proximity to us. We are, after all, in their domain.

    It's crazy how much hype there is when a shark is spotted.
